This past January the network launched their new mystery drama, and Amazon has now begun taking pre-orders for a release of True Detective - The Complete 1st Season
on both DVD
and also Blu-ray Disc
. These listings are prior to the official HBO Home Video announcement for the title, though, so instead of a street date Amazon merely says "This title has not yet been released. You may pre-order it now and we will deliver it to you when it arrives.
Pricing is available, however, currently showing $59.99 SRP for the standard DVD and $79.98 SRP for the Blu version (you can, of course, guarantee your copy right away at a discounted price, if you order it using either of the above links). There are no other details available so far at Amazon's entry, nor box art (the only image is a temp pic using promo artwork). We'll update you further on this title, of course, just as soon as we find out anything more! In the meantime, here's the studio description of this title, taken from the Amazon listings:
HBO premieres a new drama series, True Detective, this season focusing on Martin Hart (Woody Harrelson) and "Rust" Cohle (Matthew McConaughey), two detectives and former partners who worked in Louisiana's Criminal Investigation Division in the mid-1990s. In 2012, for reasons not immediately revealed, the two are interviewed separately by investigators about their most notorious case: the macabre 1995 murder of a prostitute by a possible serial killer with disturbing occult leanings.
As they look back on the case, Hart and Cohle's personal backstories and often-strained relationship become a major focal point. Hart, an outgoing native Louisianan and family man whose marriage is being frayed by work stress and infidelity, is (at least on the surface) the polar opposite of Cohle, a lone-wolf pessimist and former narcotics detective from Texas. While the plot is moved forward by their shared obsession to hunt down the ritual killer, the true drama centers around the mercurial nature of Hart and Cohle's relationship and personalities, and how they affect each other as detectives, friends, and men.
